Slava Fokk's way of painting is distinguished by a “smart retrospection”- an exacting selection of painting techniques that allowed to create technologically perfect and plastically expressive works. Turning of Slava Fokk to origins of oil painting and to creative techniques of old Dutch manner of painting, was quite natural. Fokk has not been lost in the modern painting process which is often stunningly declarative, bringing a lot of anti-aesthetic destroying qualities and much intentional technological imperfections. Creatively interpreting a great heritage he developed his own recognizable complex of painting techniques which are justified in the painting and plastically expressive.
The women are the central object. Monumentalism and plasticity of classical art in combination with Modern Art stylistics are still attractive for the artist. His work is distinguished by a good taste, without off-limit extremes from expressive brutality to digital technologies in a “Hyper-Realism”. Some flatness of general composite solution and a delicate scumbling design within a picture make a subtly shaded pictorial image which is especially good in woman’s portraits.
